Cranberry Pumpkin Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2012
I loved these. The only change I made was to leave the cranberries whole, as they were frozen solid.

Blueberry Buckle

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2011
This is exactly the same as my grandmother's blueberry recipe except for that hers uses brown sugar in the topping instead of white. This is an awesome cake. It's a favorite in my family and among my friends.

Vegan Cupcakes

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2011
Awesome cupcakes. I used soy milk and canola oil because that's what I had on hand. I also added some diced strawberries and topped the cupcakes with strawberry frosting. I could see this recipe being tweaked to make many different flavors, and I'm sure it would be great as is. Wonderful recipe!!

Sweet Potato Pie I

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2010
This pie was great!! I made a few changes to suit my taste. I only put in 1/2 cup of sugar and I used brown sugar. I used soy milk instead of regular and I added a pinch of ground cloves. I also used only half the butter the recipe called for and it was plenty rich. I used leftover baked sweet potatoes that were stored in my refrigerator over night and did not notice any of the graininess mentioned by other raters that used cold sweet potatoes.

Savory Cheddar Zucchini Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2010
I loved these! Especially straight out of the oven. I made quite a few changes and didn't find them bland at all. Firstly, I used a mixture of grated zucchini and apple, probably a little over a cup in total. I used two big cloves of garlic and a bit of fresh ground pepper. I used one cup of cheddar cheese and omitted the parm and bacon because I didn't have any. I found the baking time to be about right, unlike other raters. I think this is a great versatile recipe. Thanks for sharing!!

Easy Beer Bread Mix

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2010
Yum. I can't stop eating this! Very versatile recipe. I substituted 1/2 of the flour for whole wheat, added chopped green olives and fresh rosemary. I used olive oil instead of butter, too. This would be amazing with soup. Next time I will try baking this as rolls in muffin tins. The best part was the crust that almost seemed fried by the olive oil. So good.

Blueberry Crumb Bars

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2010
Great and easy recipe! I love that the same mixture is used for both the bottom crust and the crumb on top! I used fresh blackberries and it worked great. The only thing I'd do differently next time would be to add less sugar. They were a little sweet for me, but everyone else loved them.

Fresh Peach Cobbler I

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2010
Great recipe! Also very versatile. I didn't have enough peaches so I used about 3 cups of peaches and 1 cup of strawberries and blackberries. I also didn't have enough white flour so I used mostly whole wheat. It came out wonderfully. This is a great recipe for entertaining, as it comes together very quickly and looks/tastes impressive with a big spoonful of whipped cream.

Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2009
awesome! I used 1 tablespoon butter instead of the 2 tablespoons shortening. This amount of chocolate coated 73 strawberries! Wow!

Drop Biscuits and Gravy

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2009
This rating is only for the biscuits, as I used a chicken gravy to top them instead of this gravy recipe. The biscuits were SO EASY. Way easier than my normal recipe and with far less fat. Will make again!

Mom's Buttermilk Pancakes

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2009
I've made this recipe many times. The recipe is ALMOST perfect as written. Cut the salt to 1/2 tsp and you have the perfect pancake recipe. This pancake is very versatile. It's great with grated apple and cinnamon, blueberries, or chocolate chips stirred into the batter. This recipe serves two hungry adults.

Dutch Apple Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2009
Very nice! I used 3/4 brown sugar instead of 1 cup of white sugar and I still found it to be very sweet. This might be because I also used a sweeter apple. I will definitely make this again, probably using 1/2 cup brown sugar and sweeter apples.

Ghirardelli® Individual Chocolate Lava Cakes

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2010
Yum! This was perfect for Valentines Day! I used Green and Black's 72% cacao baking bar. I baked them in silicone muffin cups (made 10 this way). They reheated well in the toaster oven the next day too!

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: May 4, 2009
I made a slightly healthier version of this recipe and they were still "to die for." I used one cup whole wheat flour and one half cup white flour. Instead of the topping suggested, I used some oats mixed with a little brown sugar. I also used frozen mixed berries (blackberries/raspberries/blueberries) and added an extra quarter of a cup. Yum!

Scones

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2009
Nice, but not scones as I know them. They were very soft. I'm used to dryer crunchier scones. Still, we loved them. I substituted whole wheat flour for half of the flour in the recipe. They were great with jam.

Banana-Dulce de Leche Pie (Banana-Caramel Pie)

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2009
My boyfriend and I have nicknamed this dessert "death pie," as it is so clearly unhealthy and decedent. That said, we loved it. We live in Chile where dulce de leche is called majar and there are whole supermarket shelves dedicated to selling it ready made. Since graham crackers are hard to come by here, I used an oatmeal cookie crust which I HIGHLY recommend. It gave a great texture to pie.

Crispy Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2010
When I made this I used chicken breasts cut into chunks. The cooking time seemed a bit long so I fried the chunks for 10 minutes instead of 30. They were a bit over cooked and tough. The coating, however, was amazing! I'm sure that this would be a 5 star++ recipe if I fried the chicken for less time (or used big pieces of chicken).
